Ready or Hot 2018

Ready or Hot 2018

Ready or Hot is back for its 5th year in 2018 with a high-fashion runway show featuring the hottest looks from Twin Cities retailers modeled by dedicated supporters of Planned Parenthood.

Our community models are everyday champions who support Planned Parenthood. They come in all shapes and sizes, are fiercely committed to fighting for reproductive rights. Ready or Hot celebrates the beauty of every individual person, regardless of size, shape, age, gender or race.
